Severe weather can be as unpredictable as it is dangerous.

1996 was a record year for weather-caused destructive damage in the United States. That record was exceeded in 1997. The 1997 record was broken in 1998. The 1998 record was surpassed in 1999.

People who invested in portable water filters primarily for camping, hiking or home use also have the benefit of a clean, safe drinking water supply in the event of a natural or man-made emergency.


British Berkefeld has been providing safe, good tasting drinking water for over 140 years.

Because British Berkefelds can process any fresh water source into safe, good tasting drinking water, they have become a popular choice for emergency water needs.

"In January 1993 when the Serbs destroyed a water treatment facility in Sarajevo, 58,000 British Berkefeld gravity filters were shipped to the people of Sarajevo."

Their design and operation are also consistent with disaster conditions:

  • Accepts any fresh water source
  • No electricity required
  • No water pressure required
  • Completely portable

Many people have already discovered that the Clearbrook Water Filtration Bottle is the perfect companion for trips to the shopping mall, soccer field, hiking, camping or on the desk at the office.

"In the fall of 1999 the Clearbrook water filtration bottles were used by some workers during post disaster relief after Hurricane Floyd. Some of the workers were using the Clearbrook portable water bottles to filter the contaminated waters (dead animals were lying around), so that they might be able to drink clean, safe water."

The Clearbrook Water Filter Bottle can also serve as a portable emergency water supply in a crisis situation.

Light weight, convenient and very portable, the Clearbrook Water Filtration bottle will accept fresh water from any source available. A gentle squeeze of the bottle ushers forth a stream of clear, safe drinking water.
